Reasons For

Hisense H43M3000 Sony KDL-40WD653
6 Reasons For
7% Larger Display Diagonal
The Hisense H43M3000 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Sony KDL-40WD653 (40").

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

60% Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Hisense H43M3000 is a 500Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 300Hz faster than the Sony KDL-40WD653 (200Hz).

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power
The Hisense H43M3000 has an RMS rated power of 14W, whereas the Sony KDL-40WD653 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (4W lower).

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

The Hisense H43M3000 costs £325.00, whereas the Sony KDL-40WD653 is £359.00.

5 Reasons For
A Lot Thinner

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

What are They Best Used For

Watching Films

When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

Compare the best TVs for film.

Watching Sport

When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

Compare the best TVs for sport.

Playing Games

When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.
